Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
IaaS use cases typically involve a dedicated or virtualized computing environment that enables customers to deliver IT services completely from the Cloud. Storage is of course a large component in these solutions. For performance and security reasons, many customers only could utilize a dedicated environment – at a high cost. CloudByte enables IaaS to be provided either on a dedicated or a shared infrastructure. Storage performance and capacity can be changed on the fly and the effect of the change immediately viewed. Most importantly, both CapEx and OpEx costs are dramatically reduced.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
SaaS use cases range from an entire software suite delivered as a service, such as CRM systems, to hosting entire desktops in a centralized system, such as VDI implementations. SaaS implementations typically encompass platform and infrastructure components such as storage. With capabilities to select the exact application storage performance required, to scale capacity on the fly, and to ensure security in shared environments, CloudByte shines in SaaS environments. For example, in VDI environments CloudByte can help ensure that desktops boot smoothly, reliably, and consistently.
